Free for SIFF Members! Koyaanisqatsi director Godfrey Reggio and composer Philip Glass present this wordless portrait of modern life, a stunning black and white meditation comprised of only seventy-four shots that takes viewers on a journey to the moon and back.

Visitors reveals humanity's trancelike relationship with technology, which, when commandeered by extreme emotional states, produces massive effects far beyond the human species. The film is visceral, offering the audience an experience beyond information about the moment in which we live. Comprised of only seventy-four shots, Visitors takes viewers on a journey to the moon and back to confront them with themselves.
